Deepwater Habitat and Fish Resources Associated With A Marine Ecological Reserve: Implications For Fisheries Management, 1996 - 2001 (NODC Accession 0000765)

The California Marine Resources Protection Act (MRPA) authorized approximately $1 million for research on marine resource enhancement and management to be conducted in four coastal ecological reserves (Punta Gorda Ecological Reserve in Humboldt County, Big Creek Ecological Reserve in Monterey County, Vandenberg Ecological Reserve in Santa Barbara County, and Big Sycamore Canyon Ecological Reserve in Ventura County). The ecological reserves differ widely in physical features and biology, as well as in the socio-economic characteristics of nearby communities.

General research topics have been established by the DFG, such as marine reserves as a resource management tool, fish community and population studies, and harvest resilience. The UC Sea Grant was selected in June of 1996 to administer this program. In awarding grants, the UC Sea Grant will establish a special panel of scientists and other professionals for evaluating the merits of proposals covering these very dissimilar reserves.
